We stayed here on our first night of a week long driving tour of Bavaria. Even with the chilly air and overcast skies, the drive from Munich was beautiful. We had a nice stop in Landshut for breakfast and walking tour in Regensburg before checking-in.
Arrived at this property and were a little confused about the check-in procedure. You can't actually drive up to the front door, presumably due to the rickety wooden drawbridge and the small size of the entry gate. Make sure you walk (without luggage) to the front desk and request a bell hop to fetch your luggage with a golf cart.
I really think we were the only ones staying here on a Tuesday night. I got the sense this is a summer wedding destination spot but not terribly popular in the winter. It was dead! Still, we had a delicious dinner in the Wintergarden and an ample breakfast buffet.
Would have loved to used the spa, but they said they needed to fire it up 30 minutes beforehand. I'll echo some prior comments about the weird bar situation -- we had to summon the receptionist at the front desk to order some pre-dinner drinks. The staff were perfectly friendly. But we sometimes got a sense that we were interrupting what would otherwise be some relaxing mid-week downtime. If I'm back in the area, particularly in the summer when the grounds are in bloom, would give it another try. But there's not much in the immediate vicinity that might inspire a repeat visit. Unless you want to get married in an old German castle....
